HCS Pro League Summer 2017 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

I really needed this post thank you from the bottom of my heart. Would like to talk more. Hope the show has been getting better. I should not have said some of the things I did. Sorry about that I will most likely be taking a much needed break from major event for the next few months

damn 343 kills. At this point people don't know who to blame and they lash out. I don't know who to blame. But it's terrible. Amateur mistakes all around.

I bet you at least a few people over at MLG already have some thoughts on tweaking Halo5 competitive play...perhaps even some testing.

That is precisely why they are so against involving MLG. Because MLG is a 'no half-measures' organization now. They don't run things for the sake of running things to have nice PR tweets about growing eSports and blah blah unique viewers. They put on quality events, and like Adam said, even send strike teams who are prepared to handle things to make sure events run well even when they aren't in charge. They know what works and what doesn't because they have been in this game for over a decade plus. 343 needs to control every facet of the game, even modes originally created by fans. It needs to be their way or the highway. Let's remember it was MLG that salvaged H3 from Bungie, ensuring proper maps, weapon loadouts and placements, to make sure things were great from a competitive standpoint. But it won't happen.

Everyone has these times man, it sucks but you'll bounce back. Today (barring the first hour) and the issues in and around the nV game, I thought the majority of the stream was much better.

I am envious of the Melee community. Fought hard against their developers oppression towards their competitive community and still have one of the biggest competitive titles...16 years after release.

 

I wonder what it would of been like to just stick with H2/H3 for a few more years.

 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It's not something to envy, it's something to admire. Grass roots scenes, especially fighting games did and continue to do their dirty work to play games they know they want to play. It's organic, international and most importantly sustainable.

 

Halo could have easily had that, I mean the CE guys are still going strong but there's just little interest in anything outside of chasing the mainstream dream.

I feel like if TB teamed up with some of the guys that run stuff like the jwalk tournaments they probably could put H3 on and create a scene for it but it would take a lot of work and they'd have to stick with it. I'd like to see it happen with H2 but I feel like we might not be able to attract enough people for that or CE at this point. I just think the H3 guys are still around if enough of the right people wanted to do it and it aged well enough to still look relatively good

What if they are tanking the stream on purpose so they can use the low viewership as an excuse when they bring back autos  :thinking:

he's talking about the VIP lounge, VIP passes cost $150 and 3 day passes cost $50

 

i paid $50 for my UGC VIP pass for GOW Atlantic City and that took place in a gorgeous theater and casino (3 day spectator passes were $20)

 

you got a pass (no passes for this event) and you got an event T shirt that cost 20 bucks

This really demonstrates my point that they are treating this like they're selling a "thing" instead of an experience.

 

Edit: ive been way more negative than usual the last couple days. Time to knock it off. last negative post unless something else janky happens today. Hopefully stream is clean and gameplay is lit.

Almost all VIP pass sales are a complete scam, especially from smaller TO's.

Sometimes I wonder how strong competitive Halo would be if H2 would've been CE gameplay with the spawn system from CE for 2v2 slayer but with a reworked spawn system for 4v4 and improvements to objective modes like not having auto-pickup on the flag and not having a ridiculous reset time on the oddball. That game would've been GOAT.

I still cant get over the fact that oxygen and splyce will have to compete again for the last pro league spot in an online tourney despite os being top 6 and splyce top 4 and still going

I can't believe EG is still in pro league in spite of these two amateur teams who may as well be considered pro teams. It doesn't seem fair at this point.

How is it possible that events ran more smoothly and effectively in 2005 than in 2017?

 

We need MLG to run our events.

They hired the right people and paid the people they hired.

 

The Halo Championship Series is run entirely by unqualified and underpaid people.

 

Go ahead and try and research the resumes of any individual in any position of influence within the Halo Championship Series right now.

 

 

I've been posting a lot on the forums - hope to get hired as their business development specialist.

Yeah I know, like I said it's probably of no consequence, just kind noticed it and thought, 'huh'. Wasn't saying it in an over-rule sense anyway more in terms of perhaps (hypothetically, of course) choosing to ignore any (again, hypothetical) misconduct by NV players. But like you say, its nothing.

 

Like what, though? Specifically. What "misconduct" could she possibly "ignore" without repercussions?

NV reverse sweeps have killed my hype at so many fucking events

 

I'm not sure when a reverse sweep becomes a "not hype" moment?
